loach wasting with ick

I have a young, small clown loach that is 'wasting away'. I read your discussion on the recommended medication and was wondering if this recommendation still holds true if the fish also has ick. We have been treating the tank with 'Quick Cure', and salt, along with higher water temps (82 F) for about 10 days with little success. I'm afraid if we aren't successful in finding a remedy soon it will be too late.

Also, is there anywhere else to find medication for wasting other than a farm feed store? I don't live anywhere near one.
